About Me

Midway, NC, United States
I retired from Bali Bras, Sara Lee Intimates. Married in Oct 1976. I love meeting new people so hope to hear from you. Drop me a line. I've been doing crafts of all kinds since I was a kid. I loved making things and especially things that are recycled. I had never stamped until 2001 when I went to a stamp class while on vacation. We went to a local store to buy the stamps we had used. OUCH. When we got home I saw a Stampin Up catalog and realized how much money I could save with their stamps and best part as they are sets that go together which makes for easy card making. After doing some thinking I decided I should sign up as a demo and see what happens. I didn't know the first thing about stamping and still learning. Retired from Sara Lee Intimates in Feb 2001. I was in sales after many years, since age 18, as an office person, secretary, office assistant, etc. I am out of Stamping Up since Spring 2017 but still have lots of supplies!!!! These days I'm back to quilting and having a great time.

Lets make Cards for the troops

Well I'm just thrilled to announce that one of my stampers said that her company would pay the postage to mail the cards to the troops.

So I think we should plan a date to make some cards, and round table is fun as each person is assigned one job on the card and we have time to talk.

I'll supply all the materials for these cards. So I'd like to ask that you make suggestions as to a card that you think would be fun to make with at least 6-7 jobs so everyone will have something. You know we could do 2 different cards and mark some b'day to hand out to someone having a b'day. So tell me what you think and make some suggestions.

Last time we did this everyone brought one of those 10 pack of chewing gum and we wrapped them with labels that said "Thanks" so maybe we might do that again. We were able to wrap 137 packs of gum and made 37 cards that traveled in a priority box. The fact that we cared enough to do them was enough.

A little late for July 4th. After I get some ideas, watch for a date that I'll be posting for card making. Doing a round table card should allow for some time for you to make a scrap card using my scraps on your cardstock.

My Blog

May, 2009 when I started the blog and it's still a learning experience even in 2017.

If you are ever looking for a retired stamp set, ask me, I might have it and let it go.

As a follower you'll get emails when I post things which I tend to do in batches, once or twice a month once I get back on schedule.

Thanks for stopping by and I appreciate all comments.
